Visit Travel and Transport at SAP Concur Fusion 2018 in Seattle, Washington!

1. Plan Ahead:
Be sure to look over and plan out which of the breakout sessions most interests you. With over 150 sessions, there is something for everyone. From global, to travel, to expense, to mobile, to best practices, the educational opportunities are endless but can be overwhelming if you have not prepared ahead of time! You will also find that some of the sessions are offered more than once over the course of the event. Planning ahead allows you to attend as many sessions as possible. SAP Concur has put together a Session Catalog that will aid in your planning process. 

2. Keynote Sessions: 
Be sure to attend the Keynote Sessions as these are often times where the “futuristic” ideas are first unveiled and are typically the buzz on the expo floor. 

3. Arrive Early: 
There are several sessions that are often deemed ‘must attend’ from those who have experienced them, including the Tips and Tricks sessions, Product Roadmap Overview and Year in Review. Plan to show up early to ensure you have a seat.

4. Expo Hall: 
This is a great place to ask questions and network with both industry experts as well as your peers. Here you can get the details around the latest innovations, thoughts on keynote sessions and pick up some great swag. It’s also a good way to have one on one conversations with partners and see some of the latest offerings that are available in our industry.

5. Pace Yourself: 
SAP Concur Fusion is one of the largest industry conferences. Forgo the new shoes that make an impressive fashion statement and go for comfort. Expect to do a lot of walking between sessions, the expo hall, lunch and various other events. Bring the step tracker instead of the stilettos and remember to stay hydrated!
